A majestic pitch of flawless quality. Take lots of wires. Start beneath the disjointed crack-system on the left side of the slab.
30m. Move up to the widening of the crack at the overlap. Just above the overlap, make a long step left into another good crack. Follow this, and where it fades, move right to a thin crack and follow this to the top. Sustained. Photo on page 111.

Not sure if there is a 5c move on it, but a lot of hard 5b moves with nowhere to rest you aching calves or painful feet in between. Sheer quality

claiming two new routes that were done in 90's and 00's that were recorded on local site but unsure if they have been lost.
They are -'straight to the heart' E3 5c which is a direct version of Sacre Coeur avoiding the step left (done in the late 90's) and "Poles Apart" E5 6A which is a "raindrop" type of route straight up the middle of the slab.(done in 2004).Both mike Przygrodzki.The latter is very delicate sparsely protected climbing (skyhook and small rp's)

Do not underestimate the pain that to be meted out by this route. After Sacre Coeur, fist jamming through a roof crack would feel like a birthday present.
